It simply has to be worth it - two years ago these were worth over £8 each...

Can anyone recommend a good and well priced online sharedealing service?

Bargain investment if you have some money. These wont go any lower and they will quite easily rocket soon.

hmm, yea right.

They will be buy one get one free next month. And possibly eventually the Government will get them all free.

Its life Jim but not as we know it !

Gvmnt bailout required banks to halt paying dividends FYI

Also, before buying any RBS shares, I suggest you speak to a professional or read some of the research reports out there in order to ensure you make an informed decision

chuckle :-D

they're 65p for a reason.

every share is fairly priced with the knowledge avaiable, none is cheap and none is expensive and none is more likely to go up than it is likely to go down.

they may be a reasonable long tem punt, but they ain't going back to £8.

transaction costs eat a huge percentage for small punters, if anyone is serious about investing, a spreadbet is as good a way as any, and if going for rbs then you don't miss any dividends with a spreadbet rather than owning the stock.

imho, but then this sort of stuff ain't what hukd is for, please delete....

Yes and 14 months ago my HBOS shares were worth £12!

certainly not the place to put it!

with the previous poster, they're 65p for a reason but you never know if they're nationalized completely and you loose the 65p as well, for 100 or 1000 shares it adds up.

Probably RBS will end up being broken off into smaller companies and sold off to repay debt. Its market cap is still over 10-bn pounds so it is still a ftse 100 company. Rbs future profits depend on how much they have to pay back to the government in the form of their interest paying preference shares the government now owns.

Worth a punt a reckon!

Could I interest you in some Bradford & Bingley shares?
Two years ago they were over £5 each :roll:

As the once proud owner of Telewest & Psion shares, it's a long way from 65p to zero.

Nearly all of us never sell at the top or buy at the bottom.

After the share price fall in 1929 it took until 1954 for share prices to recover. Some may say, 'yeah but WW2 was mixed up in that', but no one here has a crystal ball.


IMHO this is not the site for share tips.

Is there a minimum quantity to buy...am a learner getting used to this malarkey! lol

these could have been got for 50p the other day

My wife works for natwest, which, along with Coutts, ulster bank,and a few others RBS now own (well i now own 60% of it as a tax payer) They bought ABN AMRO recently too, probably the worst move they made.

we have loads of shares we took instead of the yearly bonus, but they are a long term thing for us ( very , very long now). i can only echo what others have said,this really isnt the sort of thing that should be on HUKD

Not the goevernment have got involved, it means we wont get anymore dividens either ( ie get paid shares for having shares) This is how the T-W-A-T-S like Sir Fred Goodwin made even more money than just the mega bonus's they get

there is a charge for doing it, it varies from place to place, so you need to make it worth you while.

You can buy online at selftrade (need to set up an account though) costs £12.50 per trade, no minimum amount, but as previous poster states, you need to make it worthwhile or you lose a lot in dealing costs. My advice would be to steer clear of this one.

The bottom line is, never invest money you can't afford to lose. Certainly in this case don't count on making any sort of a profit in less than five to seven years, and be prepared to write off the whole lot if the rescue goes t*ts up. Someone pointed me at [url]www.iii.co.uk[/url] as an online sharedealing service but like all the others it takes a few days to set up an account - money laundering and ID laws being what they are - so don't get into a flap if the shares were 50p last week and 65p today - there's nothing you can do about it if you haven't already got a share-dealing account. And as other posters point out you need to splash out lot of dosh to make it worth the transaction fees.

If you do invest, do it in the long term, and be sure you can afford to write the whole lot off.

Except back then they were 100% RBOS ........now the government owns a huge part of it ........and they've got this country in good standing just now ..................NOT !!! :roll:

In fact the government should be giving us all the shares they get as it's OUR tax cash that they are using to bail out the banks !!!

Given the government could end up owning 60% of RBS in preference shares and the rest by the ordinary shareholders it probably would not be a sound investment.

And they may not have hit rock bottom yet, you are not going to get a dividend on the shares anytime soon (the government is first in line, or whoever purchases the preference share if the government want to sell them on).

dont buy guys FTSE went down 7% percent again 2day waste of money

Buy Tesco, can't go wrong with them and a good defensive stock.

Brilliant. People voting cold and buying up! I dont care if this isnt the right place for shares - The best thing about HUKDs is that you hit the button and never know what might pop in yo face!

Love it

Anyone wanting a trading or self select ISA account can go to [url]www.selftrade.co.uk[/url]

[url]www.advfn.com[/url] is also useful for information

Hope you managed to sell yours

Does anyone know any info about buying shares that you think will go down and not up. Is this banned now as short trading?

No thats not short trading, but anyone who buys shares that they think will go down and not up should be banned from trading for their own good! ;-)

Short trading is selling shares that you don't own in the hope they will fall in value so you can buy them back for a profit - that is currently banned where it involves banks and financial institutions, currently 33 specific ones in the UK at present.
That ban will remain in force until Jan 16, 2009
